Gentle reminders and firm requirements are the ways Lisa Matchett keeps our labs and offices safe. For her actions on Health and Safety, she has earned the 2020 Health and Safety Award from United Steelworkers Local 1998. This award recognizes the outstanding performance of a U of T staff member in USW 1998 who works towards fostering and promoting health, safety, and environmental issues in their workplace.

When new regulations are instituted that are difficult to envision in a laboratory environment, Matchett works out implementations that keep our workplace functioning safely. She displays a proactive and preventative commitment to health and safety with posted reminders by our elevators and inspections throughout our buildings. Her clear and unambiguous instructions promote continuous improvement of health and safety in the workplace and encourages others to initiate health and safety policies and procedures.

Thank you, Lisa, and congratulations on your Award!
